In response to a culture saturated with devices that distance, digitize and disembody, the artists in COMPULSORY MEASURES embrace repetition and ritual as mindful strategies to ascertain meaning. Bordering on the obsessive, Jorge Benitez, Kristy Deetz, Al Denyer, Joan Elliott, Reni Gower, Steven Pearson, Jennifer Printz, and Tanja Softić provide lifelines for “making sense” out of the chaos entrenched in contemporary society. By utilizing complex systems, intricate patterning, repetitive marking, or minute detail; COMPULSORY MEASURES offers revelatory and celebratory works slowly crafted by hand.
I am not quite a cover girl this time, but you can find an amazing six page article on me, my practice, and my Roanoke studio in the fall edition of In Her Studio Magazine. Did you know I can build furniture? Find out more in the magazine. It is available at most Barnes and Nobles as well as other bookstores and arts and crafts retailers.
ANNMARIE SCULPTURE GARDEN AND ARTS CENTER
Solomons Island, MD, September 27 – October 26, 2019
After Hours Reception: October 11, 2019
Join us for an art exhibition featuring the paintings of ten women artists who see and experience the genre of landscape painting in uniquely different ways. Inspired by the written word of American geographer D.W. Meinig, the exhibition highlights how each painting embodies the idea of “landscape” as experienced through the hand of the artist and the eye of the viewer. The definition of “American Landscape” will twist and turn with each layer of painted material.

Jennifer Printz: Of Space and Matter
In the Front gallery
Friday, January 4th, 5:00 – 7:00 PM
Jennifer Printz’s drawing, prints, and mixed media work in Of Space and Matter come out of her contemplative interpretations of the firmament and how we observe or frame it intellectually, poetically and psychically. Printz’s time-intensive, meditative practices render this ephemeral, enveloping and ever changing subject to reflect the nature of human receptivity and memory, and the phenomena of meaning.

Hyperallergic included my studio in their December 14, 2018 “A View From The Easel.“
My studio is in a church. The building is on the National Register of Historic Buildings, and the congregation rents the upper classroom spaces out to a few area artists. Although I love the huge windows and the delicious morning light the studio receives, I am equally in love with the philosophy of the Metropolitan Community Church that has advocated for civil and human rights for all since 1968. As soon as I open the front door to the building, I see a sign that states everyone is welcome and safe in this space. This atmosphere sas gently infiltrated into my working practice and my desire to make work that is ultimately hopeful and uplifting.
The bright, open, and well-lit space is perfect for my two-dimensional practice. I designed and built the furniture to fit my needs. The work tables have storage so pencils, tape, and most of the tools I need are right there as I work. The wall easels complement the stand-alone easels so that multiple pieces can be worked on and displayed at the same time.
“Cogitation” was a solo exhibition of my work at The Contemporary Art Gallery at Southeastern Louisiana University from August 30th through September 27, 2018. I had a wonderful visit with on campus and got to work with students there.
I am a cover girl, well my art is! I am pleased to share that my work was included in the October 2017 edition of Whurk magazine. The magazine covers art and culture throughout the state of Virginia with great articles and design. You can pick it up for free across the state, or read it here.
My work was also selected for the September edition of Average Art published in the UK
As the summer of 2017 heats up, I am working hard in the studio preparing for a solo museum exhibition in the fall. This gives me a chance to explore in greater depth some of the ideas and concepts I began in Paris and to continue to push what I am doing with drawing and the surfaces I am drawing and printing on. Although many things are still in the works, I have decided on the exhibition title, “An almost unnoticed quietus”.
Happy to share that I just shipped three of my prints to be exhibited at the Duoro Biennial 2018 and the 3rd Global Print 2017 in Portugal. Wish I could join them!
During the months of March and April 2017, I had the great honor of being an artist in residence at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris France. The experience was amazing. The facility is in Le Marais a historic district in Paris with numerous museums, galleries, and excellent examples of Parisian architecture. I made some wonderful new friends and loved every minute. The work produced there will soon be posted, but here’s an example in the meantime.
